    Seriously do your homework and consider what you’re getting yourself into. I rented from Budget quite some years ago and I ended up with a very very old Lyon and Healy that was in serious need of regulation among other things. I recently rented from Carl Swanson and I can’t say enough about him! Call him and see what he has available.

    I see, but it doesn’t say who they are or how they acquired so many old harps.

    Budget Harps is run by Dick Flescher or Fletcher one of the two I can’t recall at the moment.

    It’s Fleischer, and you get what you can with what you can pay. I’m thrilled someone is providing low-cost rentals.

    I rent both pedal and lever harps in Florida.

    I agree you get what you can pay for. If you’re a student learning you don’t want to be learning on something that buzzes left and right, that won’t hold it’s pitch and any assortment of issues. Yes you get a lowcost rental but whoever said harp learning harp is cheap? I applaud the individuals that charge considerably less than large companies and send out instruments in very good condition.
